knitting and bang!

yesterday was a busy day.

i attended a birthday party. i took pictures, i held the birthday girl, i got her to smile at the camera for every picture but the one of her and i because i'm the one who makes the funny noises that she likes to look for.


then i went to highland's square and met up with (blogless) alpineflower and we knit outside of common grounds coffee for 2 hours. we laughed and knitted and watched the people watch us, sipped our cool beverages, and got hungry.

so we went next door to bang!. (if the exclamation point is in the name, do i still need the period to signify the end of the sentence? even though i suspect i don't need it i still put it in because it's funner. also cuz i wouldn't capitalize the next word if the sentence continued. if i capitalized.) i'd wanted to go to bang! for quite some time but felt frightened by the fact that you have to walk down a teeeeeeny alley to get to the entrance. but it was nice (there was even a tub in the bathroom for those messy meals), and although i wanted to get the meatloaf, i wound up getting the spinach ravioli topped with fried spinach. i wish i had gotten the meatloaf. not that the ravioli were terrible (although they were a touch undercooked, or extra al dente), it just turns out i was quite in the mood for meatloaf. alpineflower got the pork loin and mashed potatoes.

then we got the check and they gave us teeny tiny mints wrapped in silver. i queried aloud something to the effect of "who would go to the trouble of wrapping a tic tac?"

and upon closer inspection, they were indeed tic tacs.

tic tac
(you probably can't read it at that size, but if you click through, click on "all sizes" and look at the original you can read at least the "tic").

we opened them up and they looked like mini mentos, or white m&ms.

in the mouth, shape notwithstanding, they tasted like white tic tacs.

yea, you definetly have to puncuate even if the '!' is in the name. but then if you write something like...

"did anyone go to bang!?"

then people will just think you're completely nuts.

or they'll think it's a euphemism.

This isn't a commentary on the post, but rather your statement on the corner that says "where everyting is funnier if you picture a monkey doing it."

Your blog's name is "Love me, love my caribou," and frankly I don't think the image of a monkey loving your caribou is funny. Disturbing, sick, and twisted, yes, but funny... not so much. shudder.

alpine - mmmmmm... they were so. good.

steve - nah, you didn't ruin my fun, you just notice that it was a crappy tagline right before i got rid of said crappy tagline. now it's gone. current tagline's okay, but not that funny. i'm working on it. :)
